Before we had the highly anticipated ‘Justice League‘ coming this November, there were plans for ‘Justice League: Mortal‘, which would have been directed by George Miller. You would have seen Armie Hammer play Batman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Common as The Green Lantern and many more play the iconic superheroes in the Justice League. Unfortunately, the Writers Guild of America Strike, as well as the very successful release of ‘The Dark Knight‘ by Christopher Nolan put production on hold until it was decided that it’d be cancelled.
In a recent interview with the main villain of the movie, Jay Baruchel, some more details were revealed on Wonder Woman and Superman. On Wonder Woman’s introduction to the movie he said:
The first time you see Wonder Woman, the opening scene on Themyscira, it was just her, it’s her on top of a steed and she stood about half a kilometer away from a Minotaur. The Minotaur has a battle-ax in his hand and she just rushes him. All the Amazons are there cheering her on, and she just beheads him. Gets off her steed and holds up the Minotaur thing — and doesn’t say a goddamned thing. I was like, ‘That’s the Wonder Woman I want to see!’ It would have been special.
He then went on to explain a piece of his involvement in the film as well as a conflict between Superman and Wonder Woman:
I turn him into full red-eye Superman, and then there’s this big ass fight between him and Wonder Woman, where he breaks her f—ing wrists and sh–. And then I die halfway through the movie, and then my consciousness is uploaded into a f—ing mainframe and I’m an evil computer.
It’s hard to reimagine anyone else playing our newest heroes, but ‘Justice League: Mortal‘ sounds like it would have been quite the ride. Especially with the ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘ director behind it all!
Let us know what you think of what could have been if the movie were to release over at SuperBroMovies!
